Turn off the madness Beloved. Turn off the voice of confusion. Turn off everything that tells you that you are not good enough. Turn off the voice of the enemy.
Do not be dismayed, Beloved. Listen to My Voice of Love, Little One.
Turn off the voice that tells you that you just don’t measure up. Turn off the voice that tells you that you are not fit enough, you are not thin enough, you are not beautiful enough, that you are not performing well enough.
Be done with all that this day, My Child. Let go of the world’s expectations. It is a snare from which, in your own strength, you will never be able to escape. It is the enemy’s plan to always keep you dissatisfied and depressed.
I have laid the plumbline, My Child. That plumbline is My Son. When you are born again, you became a new creation. All things have become new, the old has passed away.
I will do the changing. It is by My Spirit that you are being changed from glory to glory. You are my son, my daughter, in whom I am well pleased. I say that there is NO spot in you, My Love. You are altogether beautiful, my darling; there is no flaw in you.
“Thus he showed me: and, behold, the Lord stood upon a wall made by a plumbline, with a plumbline in His Hand. And the LORD said unto me, ‘What do you see?’ And I said, ‘A plumbline.’ Then said the Lord, ‘Behold, I will set a Plumbline in the midst of my people: I will not again pass by them anymore”Amos 7:7,8.
“So this is what the sovereign Lord says: ‘See, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone (Jesus) for a sure foundation; the one who trusts will NEVER be dismayed. I will make justice the measuring line and righteousness the plumb line’” Isaiah 28:16-17.
“Jesus said to them, “Have you never read in the Scriptures: “‘The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone; the Lord has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes’?” Matthew 21:42.
“Now to you who believe, this Stone is precious” 1 Peter 2:7.
“He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him” Corinthians 5:21.
“You are altogether beautiful, My darling; there is no flaw in you” Song of Solomon 4:7.
“For He chose us IN HIM before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in His sight. In love” Ephesians 1:4.
“But NOW He has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in His sight, without blemish and free from accusation”Colossians 1:22.
